FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. Philips Automotive North America, a division of Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG), has released a new instructional video to support its recently introduced Philips Headlight Restoration Kit. Titled “Headlight Restoration Kit Video,” the video demonstrates the exact steps needed to complete a full restoration of clouded or hazy headlight lenses in less than 30 minutes. The video highlights proper techniques for protecting the body finish and trim areas around the headlights, polishing the lenses, and the proper safety procedures. The video also explains the added benefit of the Philips Headlight Restoration Kit’s special UV coating, which can help prevent future clouding for up to two years.
The Philips Headlight Restoration Kit includes a water-based pretreatment, a cleaner/polish, and a shine restorer/preserver, as well as the necessary grit sandpapers to properly clean and protect the headlights. The kit also includes paper towels and a set of latex gloves for a mess-free application.
The instructional video advises the viewer that headlamp clouding is a growing problem on vehicles, especially as they age. Headlight lenses can become hazed and yellowed. This lens clouding caused by sunlight, ozone, road pollution, as well as the chemicals used in car washes, reduces headlight output and compromises nighttime vision and driving safety. The discoloration of the lens mars the vehicle’s appearance and reduces its value.
“Providing our customers with an easy and effective way to restore headlight lenses to a like new condition is as important to safety and visibility as bulb replacement. Our Philips Headlight Restoration Kit does just that. Vehicle owners who restore their headlamp lenses and upgrade their headlight bulbs will dramatically improve their overall vision at night,” said Dennis Samfilippo, general manager of Philips Automotive North America.
